Hi I'm Carlton Jensen

I love camping, dirtbiking, snowmobiling and offroading in my truck. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I guess you could say I'm a motorhead. I am also a huge outdoorsman. Living in and near Montrose Colorado, most of my life has been spent in the great outdoors. I love being able to go camping every weekend in the summer. I'm a big fan of any motorsport. I enjoy being outside all year long. I enjoy dirtbiking, and snowmobiling, as well as driving my truck on the many offroad trails in my area. My favorite thing to do is ride snowmobiles and I am an Arctic Cat man all the way! I am a huge fan of NASCAR... Kasey Kahne is my man! I took an automotive class in High School, which I did very well at. I placed 3rd in the State of Colorado at a high school state automotive competition. This landed me a very good job as a mechanic in a 4x4 auto shop. I also worked for 5 years with Matco Tools. These jobs as well as mowing lawns helped me raise funds so I could serve a mission for the church. Although I love the area in which I live, I have chosen to serve a mission and am currently serving in the New Hampshire Manchester Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this religion, but in order to be a Mormon you have to be converted to the gospel. I am a Mormon, because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored gospel once again on the face of the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in church activities. I pride myself by not only attending church and church activities, but by literally living my faith. I try very hard to keep up with my personal scripture study. I try to read one scriptural book each year. I recently finished reading The Book of Mormon. I also study the many other doctrinal books written by church leaders. One of which is Jesus the Christ, written by James E. Talmage. I find this book very useful in understanding the life of Christ. I try to also improve my quality of worship at church. I try to improve my participation in Sunday school, and try to focus on the Savior during sacrament meeting.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Carlton Jensen
I feel that a mission is a great opportunity that we are given to teach people the gospel of Christ. A mission is about as close as it gets to truly devoting your life unto Christ, and I feel that it is a truly great opportunity to serve Him, by bringing people to Him. Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Carlton Jensen
Personally I feel that we can increase our faith in Christ by reading The Book of Mormon, and praying about it to know if it is true. If asked with pure intent, the spirit will testify of its truth unto us, and because it is another testament of Jesus Christ, reading The Book of Mormon, along with The Holy Bible, will increase our faith in Jesus Christ.
